Cunard are delighted that Queen Elizabeth has now returned to sailing in international waters and that Queen Mary 2 will be welcoming guests back on board from next month.
However, whilst the world continues to open up, there remains significant uncertainty regarding the path ahead.
Cunard continues to work very closely with authorities in all the destinations they visit to ensure they comply with local health and entry requirements. Unfortunately, based on the most recent advice they have received, and given the complexities of many of the international destinations involved, Cunard are not able to run Queen Elizabeth’s scheduled programme and are therefore cancelling sailings departing from 20 February 2022 up to and including 17 May 2022.
For guests who would still like to explore Asia, Cunard have alternative voyages sailing to Japan in 2023.
In addition, next month Cunard will be launching replacement sailings for Queen Elizabeth departing between February and May 2022. The sailings, which leave Southampton, include a voyage in search of the Northern Lights, journeys to the Canary Islands and the Western Mediterranean, as well as a grand voyage across the Atlantic Ocean, through the Panama Canal and on to Vancouver, Canada.
Queen Elizabeth will resume her Alaska season as scheduled.
All other published voyages on Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2 remain unaffected.
